New. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. 1972 found avant-garde film documentarist Peter Whitehead ensconced in a château in southern France with a teenage heiress model and a month's supply of film and psychedelic drugs. The startling results, never before published, are contained in Baby Doll, a beautiful yet disturbing visual diary of a last four weeks spent in the pursuit of both physical and spiritual erotic extremes. An uncensored, unflinching photographic journal of sexual metamorphosis and personality disintegration, Baby Doll is also a unique testament to Peter Whitehead's experimental vision, a forbidden legacy of an era simultaneously marked by its innocence and its licence to explore previously uncharted areas of sexuality and psychic experimentation. Includes texts by Jack Sargeant and Iain Sinclair. Peter Lorrimer Whitehead (b. 8 January 1937 in Liverpool) is an English filmmaker who documented the counterculture in London and New York in the late 1960s. A legendary figure in 1960s counterculture circles, Whitehead made the first Rolling Stones film in 1965, filmed Allen Ginsberg at the Albert Hall, in 1966 was the first person to publish a Jean-Luc Godard script in English, made the quintessential Swingin' London film in 1967, was friendly with some of the era's most beautiful women, was inside the occupied buildings of Columbia University with a camera in 1968, and filmed pop promos and concerts with some of the most important musical names of the decade, including Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. He later quit filmmaking, authored several novels and for many years ran the world's largest private falcon breeding sanctuary. LAST FEW COPIES.
